MMO-Champion - Cataclysm Beta - Build 12803
Update 01:00AM PDT - Just for fun, here is a list of 8000 items datamined in this build. Most of them are dev/internal items, with a couple of Cataclysm goodies such as Essence of the Underworld (NYI), Reins of the Grey Riding Camel, Reins of the Drake of the North Wind etc ... at the end. The HTML file is quite big, you might want to use Chrome to open it if your browser struggles.

Update 11:30PM PDT - Ok, Soul Link is still here, it just doesn't show up in the spellbook before you train it, I guess I'll just hug the trainers for future beta builds, looks like spellbook "alerts" and spells are implemented separately. Also, the hunter dead zone is confirmed to be a bug.

Also, a couple of people reported a deadzone on ... Mind Sear, I'll just assume it's also a bug. (But this kind of stuff is impossible to confirm on my side, that's not misinformation, only Blizzard knows what's bugged and what isn't :/)

Soul Link is a trainable ability.
Hunters still have a minimum range.
Demonic Rebirth has a significant cooldown.
Warlocks still have a cast time to summon demons, but can dismiss them instantly.
Hunters can summon pets instantly, but have a cast time to dismiss them. They cannot switch pets in combat.
Call Stabled Pet has been removed since hunters can call any of their 5 active pets.

Update 09:00PM PDT - Servers are up, updated Worgen creation screen, Rhumba is indeed gone.
Update - Removed Rhumba and Soul Link changes, might be a parsing bug. Will wait and see in-game.

Cataclysm Beta - Build 12803
A new build is being deployed on beta servers, stay tuned for more updates in the next hours.


Talent Calculator - Build 12803
WoWTal.com has been updated to the latest beta build.



Worgen Creation Screen
The Worgen creation screen now displays both Worgens and Human appearances of your character. You cannot customize them separately (for the moment?).

    hopefully the hyjal/goblin/worgen/vashj'ir bugs will be fixed so we can continue testing those parts!
    some music to the new zones would be nice too. Hopefully an exciting patch.

    I like what they're doing with the ranges. Also my holy priest has a smile from ear to ear.
    Too bad they cut surge of light, I guess it was too powerful with Twilight Light (change the name please X.x).
  1. Alcotraz's Avatar
    Starting to get really disgusted at the lack of DK changes, and now its just 1 nerf to a non main ability.... Losers.

    I would really like some more survivability to Enh/Ele shamans, and animation improvements, if they do that, I'll main my level 60 shaman I haven't touched in 2 expansions.

    I dearly hope Mind Spike gets bumped up to 40 yards.
    Otherwise, that's just plain stupid.
  1. Powerogue's Avatar
    smoke bomb was already pitifully underwhelming, and they reduce the radius.

    name one good reason I should keep this crap on my bar blizzard, I'll use it less than shiv.
